Sure and that quote from "Birds of the ACT" field guide is still correct. For what it is worth, or from my travels over the years I have considered that the shores of Googong Dam is one of the most reliable places to consistently find this species locally. Actually it is the specific habitat or form of trees anywhere in our region that helps you find them.

According to the "Birds of the ACT" field guide, yellow thornbills seem to be the least common of the local Thornbills - and I'd not previously seen them. So it was pleasing to find a flock of about 15-20 foraging in the shores of Googong Dam when I went for a brief drive out there this morning.
